I'm watching pic related at the moment. Why the fuck did I download this knowing full well I'm terrified of ghosts? First of the "stories" gave me serious goosebumps, here's hoping the rest do and make this a worth successor to the V/H/S style format of three short films to a movie with a connected overarching plot thingamajigger.

Anyway, what horror you guys watch lately? I tried The Quiet Place but it was so boring I couldn't even get to the first scary part. The fact that it has subtitles is also offputting.

I watched It Follows a couple weeks ago and thought it was alright, I didn't see where all the praise comes from though. It was definitely watchable, somewhat creative and technically sound but it wasn't amazing. I guess just being a decent movie really made it stand out when compared to all the other modern horror fare.

The most recent horror movie I watched was "night of the comet" from '84. Nothing mindblowing but it was fun, specially if you watch with a group of people while drinking a beer or two or smoking some weed.

Not exactly a horror movie but it might appeal to fans of older horror movies, Deadbeat at Dawn is getting rereleased on Bluray with of a bunch of other Vanbebber short movies including Gator Green!

You hit the nail on the head, nobody makes good horror right now.

I recently watched A quiet place and that was pretty decent, if you torrent it make sure to download the .srt subtitle file cause i didn't realise for like 20 mins baked out of my mind.

Also just watched the void which wasn't as good as but had more physical horror and some neat practical effect work, goes a bit stupid at the end, reccomend if you're not sober and you enjoy the first 30 mins.

Watched Tales from the Darkside (the movie) couple days ago.

First two shorts were kinda meh, the third one was pretty spoopy though.

I recommend Tales from the Hood if you haven't seen it yet.

I started Raw because I really wanted to see it when it came out, but I turned it off when they cause the car accident and start eating the dudes cuz it was making me real queasy. There was an earlier scene that made me uncomfortable too.I still wanna go back and finish it tho, just probably not stoned.

It's a cool idea and the soundtrack/setting are stylized well, the movie just has no payoff. The pool scene at the end is anticlimatic and the metaphor of the movie likening the paranormal shit to STIs is never expanded upon.

It's a trend I've noticed in modern horrors, like The Witch or It Comes at Night. They have a creepy premise and setting, but the tension doesn't build to anything, just sort of moves in shallow waves until the film ends with no real resolution. I think it's lazy writing to end with an ambiguous or unanswered question(essentially what you ask yourself watching the trailer: what's the monster and motives?) if the film doesn't raise a greater question by the end of the film.

Out of those 3, The Witch is definitely the best. The scene at the end gave us some resolution and mystery, it just didn't excite me that much.

Don't Breath was decent. There's a fucked up twist in it that kinda raises the stakes halfway through the movie and the ending is bittersweet but satisfying.

Green Room is still my favorite horror/thriller from the past few years.

What was that movie that came out like last year? It took like 10 years is post development because the director was an insane stimulant addict and a perfectionist? He died before it finally released. It was full of black humor, about the possessed retard. It was brilliant.

I really liked A Quiet Place and it had me on the edge of my seat but my friend who's into supernatural horror didn't like that the creatures in the film were monsters. I don't mind subtitles though and thought that the element of having to be quiet enhanced the film's suspense. Same with Don't Breathe. And Get Out was creepy and hilarious at the same time and thought Lil Rel Howery's performance stole the show. I don't really go out to see horror movies in theatres.

Starry Eyes. Astonishing performance from Alexandra Essoe. Has The Exorcist and Rosemary's Baby vibes, and some nice gore. Bit of John Carpenter in there, too (especially the soundtrack). Good watchin'.

Does anyone have any recommendations for horror films which would be enjoyable for someone who finds most horror films cheesy and edgy and often unwatchable?

It’s not that I am turned off by horror itself, but I am usually disappointed when I watch a horror film. They just tend to feel very cheap to me much of the time.

What i’d really like to see is a movie that is like real life, in that it includes a bit of horror, but also drama and action and maybe some comedy here and there (while still being realistic and not simply a template for cheap poopoo peepee jokes, as so many comedies are).

Punk band plays at a skinhead bar in the middle of nowhere when they witness a murder. Then shit just escalates. Patrick Stewart plays a neo Nazi ring leader. There's some funny bits too.

I can't get into most horror films for the same reason.
I prefer films in the Thriller category now, films that are primarily thrillers/dramas with horrific or disturbing undertones are MUCH better than outright "horror" films, which more often than not try to recreate a haunted house experience. Just a bunch of shock and noises and gore. Real horror comes from interpersonal relations, real horror is about...say...the concept of creating something, torturing it, disrespecting it, and then having it become strong enough mentally to defeat you violently (ex-machina is what I'm talking about but this trope fits into a bunch of good films).

The Wailing, as mentioned above
Jacob's Ladder
Possession (1981)
The Blackcoat's Daughter
Enemy
The Devil's Backbone

They're not all straight horror, but one of those might tickle your fancy

Unfortunately most horror movies fall into this category.
Most actual good horror movies aren't about scares or gore but more about creating a disturbing undertone and suspense. Main difference with thrillers is usually the presence of something supernatural.

A good example of a thriller/horror is Fallen.

Also supposedly he's been working on getting a new Twilight Zone show going. If he can manage to reboot The Twilight Zone, I'll erect an idol in his honor.

The thing about Anthology Series is that they don't have to be good. They just have to be fun. And I feel like if he's attached he could easily pull it off. Nobody wants a fuckin Amazing Stories reboot. That show sucked dick. We want Twilight Zone.

All I can say is he better not be the host of a twilight zone reboot. I don't want to see his lame black ass up there acting all mysterious and dark. I want to see a cool, suave black man, like Morgan Freeman. Not some lame comic book dork.

Him hosting The Twilight Zone is a really funny mental image. I don't think they'd ever do it though unless they're going full camp. Which would just be strange. It would be like Twilight Zone within the Twilight Zone. Twilight Zoneception.

It's been rebooted once before in the '80s, twice if you count Night Gallery in the '70s

Don't forget the 2002 reboot. Which was also hosted by a cool, suave black man. It sucked.

I don't think we need another Twilight Zone reboot since we're already flush with decent original horror/sci-fi anthology shows. Besides, if any show deserved another reboot, it would be The Outer Limits.

The '83 movie sucked cock, didn't even have any original stories
There's been multiple incarnations since then anyways, Black Mirror, Electric Dreams, (new) Outer Limits, etc

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see a new TZ, but it will fucking garbage no matter what; it's too big of a franchise that tthere's no way the studio wouldn't fuck it to oblivion and ruin everything trying to please all audiences, every other episode would "patriarchy bad" or "global warming in the future" or "don't kill people man" or "what if WE are the robits" or "it was all a dream but also possibly not" or "person i thought was person is robit" or "LOL Devil fucks with you" or "haunted mansion".

The best TZ were the ones that didnt base their shit off existing Sci-fi stories or tropes and I refuse to believe that a new series would have the gumption to push the more controversial story topics, I mean like 1/4 of the TZ was about anti-racism

I got on a voodoo kick recently. I watched City of the dead/Horror Hotel (1960), City of the living dead (1980) and Pumpkin Head 2

Horror Hotel holds up really well for a movie made in the 60's. It's an entertaining old movie that I could definetly see watching again near Halloween with people.

City of the living dead felt standard Italian horror

Pumpkin Head II is worth it if you liked the first one and are feeling a little campy. There's some bad acting and some cool monster but it's just paint by the numbers story.

Watched Phantasm 1 and 2 last weekend.
Only found out about this series when I saw a 4 part collection for 10 bucks, apparently it's a bit of a cult franchise.
Anyway, these movies are pretty weird, especially because it messes with what's real and what isn't and switches between them a lot.

First one is a somewhat typical small-town horror where only the kid figures out what's going on until he finally has convincing evidence, shit escalates, people die, etc.

Second tries to be more of an action movie but it's not very good at it. It also reminded me a lot of Supernatural with the heroes more or less roadtripping in a black muscle car with a stash of weapons in the back. I wouldn't be surprised if the creator of Supernatural took some inspiration from that.
